Monday, February 8, 2016 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

What constitutes a native plant for gardeners in the Portland metro region? Native to North America? The Pacific Northwest? Or a Douglas Fir forest on Mount Hood?  Or the banks of the Clackamas River?  Linda Hardison, director of the Oregon Flora Project (OFP), is uniquely qualified to speak on this and offer advice on the use native plants in our gardens.  

Linda believes calling a plant “native” requires consideration of both time and place.  Speaking from the perspective of the OFP, she will introduce us to a myriad of Oregon’s native plants – along with naturalized and exotic species.  Together we will learn the context from which these plants arise, and gain an appreciation for the biodiversity found in our state.
